RMT Covid-19 Charter

covid-19 charter

RMT members have demonstrated our commitment to keeping the tube and other TfL services running throughout the Covid 19 crisis. We want to provide the best possible service to workers in London but we reject workers being forced on to the tube without the necessary safety planning and before conditions are right. 

RMT demands that Mayor lift congestion charge from London lifeboat staff

RMT expresses concern over botched face mask announcement

RMT writes to Grant Shapps warning that requirement for face masks on public transport risks being marred by confusion and conflict.

Transport union RMT has written to the Secretary of State Grant Shapps to warn a lack of consultation and proper discussion in the transport industry means that the requirement for face masks on public transport from 15th June risks being marred by “confusion and conflict.”

RMT Update on proposed Night Tube changes

  • RMT is the majority Night Tube drivers' union. Please display this important update in your Night Tube depot.

June 3rd 2020

Some things are so important that drivers just want their reps to put inter-Union rivalry to one side and to work together to obtain the best outcome; and in uncertain times like these it is necessary to do just that. As we said in our first briefing, we want to work with Aslef in achieving job security for NT drivers. It is their choice to issue leaflets denigrating the RMT and our members, our concern is to get the best for you.

RMT solidarity message #BlackLivesMatter

Mick Cash, General Secretary and Michelle Rodgers, President:

George Floyd’s death is an indictment of entrenched racism within state forces. Racism has always and continues to inflict injustices on the black communities, not only in the US but also globally and in the UK.

Now is not the time for silence - we must shout our anger in the call for justice. The State must not be a tool for the expression of racism and hatred.

As trade unionists we stand united against state racism. No to silence, no to police brutality. Justice for all. Unity is strength.
